L'éthique est la manière dont nous établissons des liens entre nos actions et nos valeurs. Nous répondons aux questions d'éthique en réfléchissant à nos valeurs ou à ce qui est important pour nous. Lorsque vous ou l'un·e de vos proches êtes malade ou blessé·e, il peut être difficile de savoir quoi faire. Il pourrait être utile de déterminer ce qui vous inquiète ou vous contrarie. Il peut également être utile de réfléchir aux choix qui s'offrent à vous et de parler avec d'autres personnes de ce qui se passe. Cet outil d'éthique peut vous aider à décider ce qui est important et ce qu'il faut faire. Il comprend des éléments à prendre en considération au moment de réfléchir à la question, seul·e ou avec d'autres, ainsi qu'une liste de ressources en matière d'éthique.
